The Marian Sisters are a community dedicated to serving God and the church in the Diocese of Lincoln. We serve in various apostolates of education, health care, and social work. Doing God's will joyfully we seek to imitate Mary and St. Francis in all we do.
Our heritage stems from the Mercy Sisters of St. Francis in the Czech Republic. Our foundresses, Sr. Marta and Sr. Theresa fled their country during the communist regime and trusted that God would guide and protect them. Thus they found themselves in the heart of the United States in the Diocese of Lincoln.
Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life
O God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of Faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you.
Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who,
having found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
